The Lafayette Public Trust Financing Authority (LPTFA) supports the City of Lafayette through a range of finance-related programs and community involvement efforts. We are dedicated to utilizing the trust’s financial resources in a manner that benefits the City of Lafayette. The LPTFA is self-supporting and its operations, programs and projects are funded solely by self-generated revenues.
LPTFA has never received any tax or other budget appropriation or funding from the City of Lafayette or the State of Louisiana for its operations and has never requested such funds.
Over the years the LPTFA has supported a wide range of endeavors that have benefited the City of Lafayette in many ways – from low-income family housing to public transportation, parks and so much more.

One of the most routine ways that the LPTFA supports the citizens of Lafayette is through two First Time Home Buyers programs. These program includes the LPTFA First Time Homebuyers Program and Single-Family Bonds.
The issuing of Single-Family Revenue Bonds is another way that the LPTFA can help provide housing support to less affluent citizens of the City of Lafayette.
The LPTFA First Time Homebuyers Program is one of the primary financial vehicles that allows the LPTFA to provide mortgage financing for low income families in our community.
